The Finnish government has recently (July 2010) introduced a new law that makes broadband a legal right. The UK should follow their example.
Internet is not longer a playground: it allows people to connect and share ideas, work away from their offices, obtain news and information.
A BBC World poll earlier this year concluded that almost four in five people around the world believe that access to the internet is a fundamental right; but this right is not reflected in UK law.
The governments should regard the Internet as basic infrastructure – just like roads, waste and water.
